On October 5, over 40 volunteers of all ages helped plant 20 new oak trees at the Ventura Community Park (Kimball), on the multi-use path. Ten new Valley Oaks and ten Coast Live Oaks were planted to celebrate OAKtober and Clean Air Day. There are now 40 young oak trees along the path to provide shade and beauty, and help clean the air. The trees were purchased and volunteers organized by the Ventura Tree Alliance, and the City of Ventura Urban Forestry staff provided expertise and dug holes for the planting. Trees will be watered using Gator Bags filled weekly with reclaimed water.
